Everything you need to know for Germany v Scotland

Scotland face Germany in the opening game of Euro 2024 this evening in Munich with two Celts set to start. Celtic skipper Callum McGregor and right back Tony Ralston are expected to be named in Steve Clarke’s team to face the hosts on the showpiece opener.

The Scots have faced Germany twice in major tournaments, losing on both occasions, but they could fancy an upset against a German side that has struggled for consistency.

Team News

Angus Gunn will start in goals. The Norwich goalie is likely to have the back five in front of him of Ralston at RWB and skipper Andy Robertson at LWB. In the central trio, Kieran Tierney will be at LCB with Jack Hendry at RCB and Grant Hanley in the middle.

CalMac will likely start in the midfield with Billy Gilmour and Scott McTominay. John McGinn will likely start in the more advanced role with Che Adams in attack.


Celtic fullback Greg Taylor will start on the bench.

Referee Details

UEFA have confirmed that Clement Turpin will referee the showpiece opener. Turpin is assisted by Nicolas Danos and Benjamin Pages, with François Letexier the fourth official. The video assistant referee is Jérôme Brisard.

The French referee will be hoping that his performance isn’t the subject of discussion. The 42-year-old refereed five matches across the 2018 and 2022 World Cups, including Brazil’s last-16 victory over South Korea in Qatar.

Kick Off Time

The game kicks off at 8pm (Celtic Park Time).
